He has developed advanced powers over matter and animals, which he uses to his advance to free his nanny, Ameenabi (Aruna Irani) who is being held by Ranbir and his associates.

The film was originally started in 1990 with Sri Devi and Anil Kapoor. Jackie was first approached for the film but he declined. The film was to be produced by actor Rajan Sippy. Anil Kapoor wanted Manisha Koirala for the film. But Subhash Ghai advised her it was a wrong film to do. The film's story line was also different. There was talk that Sridevi wanted the title to be "Maharani". When the film got shelved, Anil Sharma revived the film years later with another subject, another star cast, another producer. See more
